For Michael (Mike) Woods, launching cRetirement Solutions was the fulfillment of a dream two decades in the making. “I always knew I wanted to work in the financial services space,” Mike recollects about his entry into the business. Soon after graduating from Fredonia College in 1993, Mike and a friend packed up their belongings, and left Long Island, New York with an eye to make it in Atlanta. True to his word, Mike found a job in financial services and started learning the trade. Though the company he joined went through a series of changes, Mike stayed the course and over the span of twelve years developed a very successful financial practice. In 2005, he joined Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), where he continued to expand his practice, offering comprehensive financial planning to individuals, families and business owners.
